 There are several scenarios for Ravenloft and, while there are differences between them, the common theme is that to win, you must have acquired x number of magic items at the start of your turn. This opens a magic portal and generates 20 units on it which allows you to attack opponent'​s life flasks (at d6 vs d4). Similarly, to lose a game, someone must be able to attack your life flask. ​ The life flask is your capital. There are several scenarios for Ravenloft and, while there are differences between them, the common theme is that to win, you must have acquired x number of magic items at the start of your turn.

 +**Ravenloft - Against the Vampire SE**
 +This is a 3 vs 1 team game - the vampire Strahd against 3 heroes, with various scenario options for the hero player makeup.
 +
 +Playing the Vampire:
 +  - consider taking as much of the castle early and remember that castle guardians regenerate if the territory is abandoned.
 +  - Good bonuses to get early are the Tome, control of the front gate, the chapel and overlook positions, the latter from which you can observe movement in the village below
 +  - unlike the heroes which can only enter onto the map from their life flask, Strahd can enter the village through one of 3 haunted houses. This allows Strahd to be a bit stealthy in going after magic items such as the Ring, Pendant (church), the Codex (eastern tower) or in getting units into the Cemetary.
 +  - the goal is to build up VA (vampire attack), from which to attack the heros' life flasks with and take over their player. Obtaining all 3 castle magic items garners a +2 VA per turn. Each of the non-castle magic items garners a +2 VA per turn. Having all 3 haunted houses garners a +1 VA per turn.
 +
 +Playing the heroes:
 +  - requires good communication and teamwork; generally one or more of the other players should run covering missions to root out haunted houses and keep Strahd from taking any non-castle magic items while one player starts acquiring magic items. Each of the heros should look to additional village bonuses as well.
 +  - there are 2 ways for the heroes to win - one of the heroes is able to secure 4 magic items by the start of their turn OR a hero makes it into the castle and is able to attack Strahd'​s life force directly. The latter is done by defeating the image of strahd, then the Audience Hall and finally the Life Flask.
 +  - it's a good idea for heros in the top of the order to pass units down to fellow heros life flask and let the 3rd hero then disseminate units at the end of their turn back to teammates life flasks to guard against VA attacks from Strahd.
 +  - team placement is on for many of the scenarios (all non-fighter scenarios), so use this to good advantage in building up units in the countryside for a possible attack on the caslte or in securing far-flung magic items.
